A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class. It was run by Gloria Loughman http://www.glorialoughman.com/.
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced. I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us. This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces. I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one. I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes. We have three months to complete these.
Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation" -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together.
"Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post.
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.
